My fellow Americans, we must remember that whatever when we have involved ourselves in the United Nations, that same body can and will turn on us. With Barack Obama ripping the First Amendment, a part of the document he swore an oath to uphold and defend, at the UN today, there is no doubt that Americans will feel the backlash of the UN against free speech in the U.S. It appears that the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which is a 56 state group, will not seek to institute Shariah globally with a blasphemy law.
Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, secretary-general of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), said the international community should “come out of hiding from behind the excuse of freedom of expression”, a reference to Western arguments against a universal blasphemy law that the OIC has sought for over a decade.
Separately, the Human Rights Commission of the OIC, which has 57 members and is based in Saudi Arabia, said “growing intolerance towards Muslims”, had to be checked and called for “an international code of conduct for media and social media to disallow the dissemination of incitement material”.
The Obama administration is definitely sympathetic to the United Nations free speech code. According to the Weekly Standard,
The new resolution, championed by the Obama administration, has a number of disturbing elements. It emphasizes that “the exercise of the right to freedom of expression carries with it special duties and responsibilities . . .” which include taking action against anything meeting the description of “negative racial and religious stereotyping.” It also purports to “recognize . . . the moral and social responsibilities of the media” and supports “the media’s elaboration of voluntary codes of professional ethical conduct” in relation to “combating racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.”
If you recall, in June Thomas Perez from the Department of Justice (DOJ) civil rights office refused to answer a simply question that was put to him no less than four times. Chairman Trent Franks asked Perez to affirm that the Obama Administration would “never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?” Perez refused to answer.
This is not only a threat against free speech, but it is a direct threat against any and all people who hold to a different view than Islam.
We must stand against the imposition of Shariah law being enforced on a global scale and we must stand even stronger against it here in America.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
